Wales met Denmark at Under-17 level at Llandudno on Sunday afternoon in difficult, windy conditions in front of a crowd of some 100 spectators.
Once again, the Danes started as favourites after their 3-0 win at Broughton last Friday and that was confirmed when Amalie Thestrup scored from close range after just six minutes, following a corner.
Most of the first 40 minutes was spent in the Wales half, but the windy - and at times rainy -conditions meant that chances were few and far between as the players struggled to control the ball.
As the half drew to a close, Wales lost possession in midfield and three Danish players were quick to take the ball on and Laura Jakobsen coolly put the ball past the advancing Delyth Morgan in the Welsh goal to make it 2-0.
The start of the second half saw Denmark make three substitutions, including switching their goalkeepers, but it was the introduction of the reserve centre forward, Malene Sorensen that made a difference as she bagged two goals in the 66th and 68th minutes to put the visitors out of reach of a Wales team that had worked hard to get back into the match.
Further substitutions came from both sides, but at the final whistle, Denmark had once again shown their class with Sorensen getting her hat-trick in the final minutes to give the visitors an emphatic 5-0 win.
Wales Under-17: Delyth Morgan, Rhian Cleverly, Katie Williams, Mali Summers, Ashleigh James (sub Bridie Davies 72mins), Rachel Hignett, Emma Beynon (sub Samantha Quayle 65mins), Allie Young (sub Sophia Rees 77mins), Ellie Leek (sub Angharad Chambers 77mins), Rachael Nattrass (sub Hannah Lewis 62mins), Sydney Hinchcliffe (sub Georgia Evans 52mins).
